you can run 12.04 for sure but 3d mode can be slow or even unsupported.. at least you can use 2d mode and tweak it to make it better

This look good but looks like I will not gonna enjoy unity with 3d after all :( – Doctoa Oct 23 '12 at 13:39
this depends on your graphic card cause amount of ram fits requirements so maybe it will work but there is nothing to special about it exept some effects. – polarkatenuchie Oct 23 '12 at 13:42
If your system is sufficiently old enough, 3d won't work. It'll run in 2d mode, though, automatically, if your system doesn't support 3d\. – Thomas Ward Oct 23 '12 at 13:47
